Maidstone Family Clinic

Meet our Team

Mr. Khanh Le had a dream to become a doctor since he was a little boy in Vietnam. He is inspired by his father who was an army nurse officer in South Vietnam. He has seen his father helping people for years, which has really motivated him to be a doctor and continue this line of service. However when his father was forced to take his family away from Vietnam and start over in Melbourne, Khanh was only 15 years old and thought it would finally be his chance to fulfil his life-long dream. Unfortunately, Khanh did not have enough English skills to support his academic performance and he could not apply for medical school. After a few years working as a Chemical & Bioprocess Engineer, Khanh finally got the courage to open Maidstone Family Clinic in June, 2017, with the support of his family. To Khanh, the most important thing is to reach out and help as many people as he can. As an immigrant himself, Khanh fully understands the difficulties people need to face when they come to Australia.

Maidstone is central to other local areas including Flemington, Kensington, Maribyrnong, Ascot Vale, Keilor East, Footscray, Brooklyn, Yarraville, Braybrook & Sunshine. Therefore Maidstone was chosen to set up this clinic.
